ISLANDER 




THOMPSON ACADEMY 



THOMPSON'S ISLAND 
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 



DEDICATION 




THE CLASS OF 1959 DEDICATES 
THE YEARBOOK TO MR. 
B. Y. KIHLSTROM 



Although many words of appreciation could be written 
about Mr. Kihlstrom, our feelings are summed up with these 
four sincere words -- Friend, Teacher, Musician, Scholar. 
It has been a privilege to know him. His friendly smile, 
gentle direction and dedicated teaching will ever be an in- 
spiration to us.

And this our life, exempt from public haunt, 

Finds tongues in trees, books in the running 
brooks, 

Sermons in stones, and good in everything.

And it must follow, as the night the day. 
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
